July 25, 1998
We were happy to be heading for the coast on a hot day in the Willamette Valley.
The sky was blue so streaks of sunlight shone through as we hiked in the woods.
After gazing at Three-Mile Lake, we headed to the beach where a blanket of fog greeted us.
The ocean waves were whipped up by the wind; it was dramatic!
The headwind slowed us down a bit but we all made it through the dunes in fine shape.
On the return trip we treated ourselves at Alpha Bits in Mapleton, where we found a little
park behind the stores by the river.
It was hot again so the ice cream sure tasted good!
The nine of us were: Wendy Clarke, Ellie Maliner, Lois Weinfeld, Sheila Ward, John Agnew,
Teresita Ladd, Kathleen Nolte, Shirley Froyd and leader Shirley Cameron.
